CRAFT in the Community
One of the best parts about being a small local business is making a positive impact within your local community. Without all of you, what we do wouldn't be possible, so it's part of our mission to give back! Along with providing a delicious product and exceptional service, community involvement is one of the values that we've held dearly since the idea of CRAFT was born. Extending our service beyond the doors of our cafe, into West Dundee and the surrounding areas, is one of our greatest prides.
Since day one, we've made donations, both monetary and food, to local community groups such as the Fox River Valley Libraries Summer Reading Program, Spa Bleu's 5K for Clean Water, Elgin Community College's Founders' Day event, as well as participating in multiple church and school PTO fundraisers. We try to ensure that your purchase with us goes farther than just our bottom line - that it also gets passed along to other positive fixtures in the community. If there is a great local cause you know of that you think we should consider in the future, feel free to let us know!
We also believe a rising tide lifts all boats, and we've made a concerted effort to work with other small businesses in the area to see how we can help each other grow. By choosing to partner with area business people for our construction, signage, accounting and payroll needs, we keep those dollars here locally. Additionally, coming together on events and cross-brand collaborations (can you say donut flavor mashups - coming soon!) with other local restaurateurs and artists, we all contribute to each other's future success.
We look forward to continuing to invest in the people and businesses of this amazing area we call home, and to the future growth and prosperity for all of West Dundee.
